Wheat prices hit record high following India's surprise export ban

The price of wheat jumped to US$ 453 per tonne as the European market opened on Monday after India decided to ban exports.

Wheat prices were already high in the wake of Russia's invasion of major wheat exporter Ukraine which was the world's sixth-largest exporter of wheat in 2021 with a 10% share of the global market.

Adding to the fuel, New Delhi banned wheat exports on Saturday, as a scorching heatwave curtailed output and domestic prices hit a record high.

India said the move was needed to protect the food security of its own 1.4 bn people in the face of lower production and sharply higher global prices.

On Sunday, commerce secretary BVR Subrahmanyam stated that some parts of India have seen prices of wheat and flour jump 20% to 40% in recent weeks.

This sharp rally has tempted farmers to sell their already low produce to traders instead of the government. This got the government worried about its buffer stock of almost 20 m tonnes which was depleted by the pandemic.

Export deals agreed before the directive issued on 13 May could still be honoured but future shipments needed government approval.

The export ban has trapped some 1.8 m tonnes of grain at ports, leaving traders facing heavy losses from the prospect of selling onto a weaker domestic market.

The spike, exacerbated by fertiliser shortages and poor harvests, has fueled inflation globally and raised fears of famine and social unrest in poorer countries.

Adani group's open offer to buy 26% stake in Ambuja Cements and ACC Ltd

Day after billionaire Gautam Adani's conglomerate bought Switzerland-based Holcim AG's cement businesses in India, the Adani group on Monday made an open offer to buy a 26% stake each in its two listed firms from public shareholders.

The Adani group through its Mauritius-based subsidiary Endeavour Trade and Investment has made an open offer at Rs 385 per share for Ambuja Cements to acquire up to 516.3 m equity shares, aggregating to a total consideration of Rs 198.8 bn.

While for ACC, the offer stands at Rs 2,300 per share to acquire up to 48.9 m shares, aggregating to a total consideration of Rs 112.6 bn.

Note that this is the largest ever acquisition in India's infra and material space valued at US $10.5 bn.

The entire transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2022. It may increase Adani's stake by more than 80% in both companies.

Speaking of the Holcim-Adani buyout, we did an editorial recently explaining why it makes sense if Adani acquires Holcim's India stake.

Paradeep Phosphates IPO

Paradeep Phosphates is the country's second-largest manufacturer of non-urea fertilizers and Di-Ammonium Phosphates in the private sector.

The offer will open for subscription today and the last day to subscribe to the public offer is 19 May.

The company aims to raise Rs 15 bn by a combination of fresh issue of equity shares aggregating up to Rs 10 bn and an offer for sale (OFS) of 118.5 m equity shares of Rs 10 each aggregating up to Rs 5 bn.

The price band for the offer has been fixed between Rs 39-42 per equity share having a face value of Rs 10 each. Investors can bid for a minimum lot size of 350 shares and in multiples thereof.

The net proceeds from the fresh issue will be utilized to part-finance the acquisition of the manufacturing facility in Goa, repayment/prepayment of part of its borrowings, and general corporate purposes.

Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) listing

As per market observers, LIC shares continued to trade at a discount of Rs 19 in the grey market yesterday. The grey market discount indicates that the stock may have a moderate to discounted listing.
